Let f(x) = x^4-3x^2 + 2 and g(x) = 2x^8 - 6x^2 + 2x -1. Let a be a constant. What is the largest possible degree of f(x) + a* g(x)?

Multiplying by a constant does not change the degree of a polynomial  ( unless the constant = 0 )    ( the addition of the two COULD change)

  degree 8 would be the largest possible ...
